  • Kentucky lost a 'true statesman' in Ford

    Late last week, Kentucky lost one of its true statesmen with the passing of former U.S. Senator Wendell Ford.

    Since then, there have been numerous accolades about his many accomplishments in Washington, D.C. – from helping to write and pass the Family and Medical Leave Act to promoting Kentucky’s signature coal and tobacco industries – but it is worth noting that several actions taken during his time as governor continue to benefit Kentuckians today.

  • Breaking through the glass ceiling

    There’s a quote that says, “Well-behaved women rarely make history.”

    If that is the case, I was witness to a very rare history-making event and I almost missed it.

    At the beginning of last week’s Henry County Public Schools Board of Education meeting, Miranda Clubb was named the chair of the board. It was an agenda item that could have easily been overlooked and it happened so quickly and quietly, I had little time to jump up and grab a quick picture to preserve the moment.

    The Eminence Warriors traveled the short distance to their in-county rivals Henry County Jan. 20 and evened the season series at one game each by hitting some clutch shots down the stretch to pull out a 67-64 win.

    It was a game of contrasting styles as the Warriors tried to use their superior quickness to drive to the basket and create close range shots while Henry County tried to work the ball inside to take advantage of their superior size.

    The Henry County Lady Cats found their shooting eye for the second straight game as they pounded the visiting Valley Lady Vikings 70-36 on Jan. 20. After struggling with scoring for most of the season, the Lady Cats have set season highs in points in two consecutive games.

    “Early in the season, no matter who we played, we had trouble scoring,” Lady Cats coach Todd Gilley said. “Now we have scored in double figures in eight of the last 10 quarters. It’s nice to see that progression.”
